John Squire Creates Josef Fritzl and Harold Shipman Art


John Squire


Former The Stone Roses guitarist John Squire has created abstract images of serial killer Harold Shipman and incest monster Josef Fritzl for a new exhibition.

John Squire, a renowned and respected artist, has included the two notorious criminals among artwork at a gallery display in London, titled John Squire: Celebrity.

He has used patterns and symbols inspired by the mythical eight-pointed star in place of the subject's face, and has named other pieces after actresses Lindsay Lohan and Keira Knightley, legendary director Woody Allen, and soccer superstar David Beckham.

Squire says, "It's a brief respite from the endless bombardment of celebrity images. It asks,' How often do we really need to see copies of complete strangers' faces, and why do we collectively choose those particular people?"

Harold Shipman, a family doctor, murdered 15 patients by administering lethal injections at his surgery in England. Josef Fritzl was caged for life in 2009 after pleading guilty to charges including incest and rape for keeping his daughter as a sex slave for 24 years in a basement dungeon at his home in Austria.

Squire's exhibition runs at London's Idea Generation gallery from June to July.
